Yvoni Kyriakidou

Doctoral researcher, University of Westminster

I am currently a Doctoral researcher at the University of Westminster in London. I am interested in studying new physiological pathways that lead to increased performance and how these can be affected or induced by performing specific training protocols.

My research is focused on how extreme environments, in particular heat acclimation, affects human performance and health. Furthermore, I am exploring the impact of different nutrition strategies on physiological mechanisms.

I have obtained a BSc degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and a MSc degree in Human Nutrition (Sports).

I have also worked as a Research assistant (Dietitian-Nutritionist) with Democritus University of Thrace, Greece in a research project with title: Evaluation of Eating Habits, Physical Activity and Prevention of Nutritional and Musculoskeletal Disorders in Miners.
